bevacizumab therapy or temporary suspension of the drug in patients with moderate to severe proteinuria has not been evaluated. Nephrotic syndrome has been reported in less than 1% of patients receiving bevacizumab in any clinical trial. One patient died and one required dialysis. In three patients, proteinuria decreased in severity several months after discontinuation of bevacizumab; no patient had normalization of protein levels following discontinuation of bevacizumab. Bevacizumab should be
Medications It is essential to have a detailed family history described for most common malignancies. Often, the observation of multiple family members with similar cancers generates referrals for genetic # 11488 Cust: LWW Au: Geshwind Pg.

An example of this includes familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) or hereditary nonpolyposis colon cancer (HNPCC).7 This entity affects multiple first-degree family members with
exam can be more focused for the patient’s specific tumor type and extent of disease. For example, HCC or metastatic liver disease not only affects the abdomen (distention, ascites, hepatomegaly, pain) but can also affect the lower extremities (edema), the skin (jaundice), and the eyes (icterus), to name a few organ systems. Following assessment of the vital signs, assessment of the overall health status of the patient should be obtained. This includes an evaluation of the patient’s body habitus

Based on promising results obtained in other types of liver cancer, radioembolization has also been used in a limited fashion to treat patients with ICC.43,44 Two groups recently reported their respective experiences with 90Y radioembolization in the treatment of ICC. Ibrahim et al. treated 24 patients with
confluence; type 3 involves the primary confluence and, additionally, either right (3a) or left (3b) secondary confluence; and type 4 involves the secondary confluence of both the right and left hepatic ducts. Strictures in the common hepatic duct or the CBD can be treated with a single stent. In the case of a type 1 lesion, there are two advantages in approaching from the right side: the angle of approach to the point of obstruction is 90° or greater, making for easy catheter insertion; and the
